    Knowledge Of Practicing Physicians About Their Legal Obligations When Caring For Patients With Disability

    Jan 27, 2020 by Bioethics and Humanities
    Eric G. Campbell and Julie Ressalam are co-authors, along with of "Knowledge Of Practicing Physicians About Their Legal Obligations When Caring For Patients With Disability," recognized as one of Health Affairs TOP TEN Articles of 2019. Federal civil rights laws not only prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities but also require reasonable accommodation to ensure equal access to services. Co-author Nicole Agaronnik interviewed physicians in Massachusetts and find that interviewees report a limited or incorrect understanding of their obligations to patients with disability in three potentially problematic areas: “deciding which accommodations their practices should implement, refusing patients with disability, and holding patients accountable for costs of accommodations.” These findings indicate that legal protections alone are insufficient for effectuating equal access to care.

Stigma isolates people, causes suffering, and violates basic obligations to treat people fairly and with dignity. Accordingly, we should intervene to alleviate it.
